This is a Band 01A/Pink A book in the Collins Big Cat reading programme which offers emergent readers very simple text supported by illustrations. This is a simple information book with smaller versions of all the photographs repeated on pages 14 and 15 so children can retell the information in their own words. This non-fiction book is paired with a story on the same theme: The Picnic (9780007185399) written by Monica Hughes and Gustavo Mazili. This book has been levelled for Reading Recovery.
